Well I have looked but not found, so maybe someone will have some bright ideas.

 

 

 

Bought a couple a cheap Android media boxes to hook up to the TV with HDMI.

 

They came with a little IR remote that has very basic navigation - no keyboard or anything.

 

The box is actually much easier to use with a physical mouse plugged into a USB port.

 

 

 

What would be really good would be a wifi enable remote, preferably an app for my android mobile phone and I would imagine you would need something running on the android media box all the time as well.

 

At a push some sort of desktop sharing app running on the android TV box that I could connect to with my phone.

 

I have spent quite a bit of time looking but have not found anything suitable. Dont really want to go and buy a wireless keyboard/mouse.

 

Anyone have any good ideas?
